Woolstok Light, a new, fingering weight yarn added to the Blue Sky Fibers' yarn and Woolstok collections. Inspired by the much-loved and highly admired Woolstok (Worsted), Woolstok Light is made from 100% Fine Highland Wool.
It's time for warm weather knitting! New colors of Woolstok Light have been added to the Woolstok Light yarn collection! And a brand new Knit-A-Long (KAL) too!
New for Spring 2022 - Blue Sky has added seven lively, spring-inspired colours to this growing Woolstok Light collection, for a total of 21 colours. This mix of colours adds a sense of freshness just in time for spring and define this well rounded palette, full of versatile neutrals and vibrant pops of color. Soft and woolly with beautiful stitch definition, this lofty, single-ply yarn takes on a new richness of color and allows you to get creative with your knitting by designing with a single color or combining colours for unique colourwork projects. The recommended needle range is 3-5 us/3.25-3.75 mm, but Woolstok Light looks great, even up to an 8 US/5 mm.
Join us May 1 through June 30 as we join in Blue Sky Fiber's Spring KAL, of the Point Grey Tunic, knit in soft and lofty Woolstok Light. Made from 100% Fine Highland Wool, this piece is surprisingly lightweight, perfect for wearing in every season. In this KAL, which is great for intermediate knitters, participants will learn how to knit this piece by creating lattice lace borders and a split neck.
The Point Grey Tunic is written for sizes XS through 5XL and takes 4 to 10 skeins of Woolstok Light. Purchase your yarn now, add a note to let us know you would like to make the Point Grey Tunic and receive the pattern as a free download, so you can get started swatching right away.
